Presented by UCLA Film & Television Archive, the American Cinematheque, and the Hugh M. Hefner Classic America Film Program

Within the pantheon of American independent filmmakers, there exists nothing more singular than the cinematic diversity, texture and brilliance of John Sayles. A champion of the American working class, Sayles steeps his stories in the realism of grassroots social interrogations, nuanced character perspectives and everyday human struggle. As the home of the John Sayles film collection, the UCLA Film & Television Archive is honored to host the filmmaker in person for the retrospective, in conjuction with the American Cinematheque.

Screenings in this series will take place at the Billy Wilder Theater, Egyptian Theater, and the Aero Theatre.
